Trans- Across, Beyond, Through (Panel Discussion)

CCCD is pleased to announce the second annual Windgate Research and Collections Curator Lecture, Trans—Across, Beyond, Through.

Please join us for an evening dedicated to unpacking the powerful, and loaded, prefix trans-, defined as “across, beyond, and through.” From nation-wide activism supporting the civil rights of transgender people, to the popularity of the show Transparent, trans- is having an “it” moment. Taking the current political and cultural energy as a jumping off point, this special panel presentation brings together three innovative creatives to discuss how their practices illustrate, leverage, or probe the meaning of the prefix trans-.

Jes Fan, Rachel Frank, and Kay Wells have studio and research practices that, on the surface, seem very different. Moderated by Windgate Research & Collections Curator Elissa Auther, this panel will form new connections between the artists as each responds to the question: “How does your work invoke trans-?”
